within 48 hours. >> speaker john boehner voted for the deal, breaking the republican leaders eric cantor of virginia and kevin mccarthy of california who voted against. paul ryan joined speaker boehner, voting for the bill. after the vote, president obama tried to set the terms for the fiscal fights ahead in a rare late-night appearance with joe biden by his side in the briefing room. >> the one thing that i think hopefully in the new year we'll focus on is seeing if we can put a package like this together, with a little bit less drama, a little less brinksmanship, not scare the heck out of folks quite as much. >> but republicans are already looking ahead to another budget showdown in late february. that's when the temporary delay on domestic and military spending cuts expires and when congress must raise the $16.4 trillion debt ceiling limit to avoid default. >> save your powder for the debt ceiling fight. we have leverage at the debt ceiling to make this president face up to the fact that we're spending our way into oblivion. >> last night, the president warned republicans not to use t

to simply come up for a vote. but he's got problems, including his number two, eric cantor, doesn't like, he can't support what the senate passed in such a lopsided vote and it looks like there's going to be a vote maybe tonight on new legislation which if it's passed by the house would then have to go back to the senate. >> reporter: that's right. first of all, let's talk about your question about the house speaker. he, i am told by several people in this meeting today, was very intentionally did not give his opinion. he didn't say whether he supports or opposes this bill. eric cantor did and he was certainly sending a signal to conservatives and making clear his personal position for good reasons. as the speaker goes, he really, i'm told, was told to just listen to concerns of the members. but it is true that if they do amend this, that it would have to go back to the senate down the hall here and it would have to be passed by thm or not. the other thing, just to sort of play this out a couple of days, there's a new congress sworn in on thursday, in just two days. if they don't finish this
, governor cuomo, we met with eric cantor, who by the way, kept his word throughout this, and the bill was drawn. we were promised that it would come up yet. we provided every penny of documentation, and the speaker of the house of representatives walked off the floor, didn't even give us a courtesy of a notice, told as ann -- -- so there's some dysfunction in the leadership, the speaker for some reason is taking it out on new york, long island and new jersey, speaker boehner is the one. he walked off the floor, refused to tell us why, refused to give under the circumstances any indication of warning whatsoever, and eric cantor met with us throughout the week, he devised the strategy how to bring it to the floor to make it acceptable to let the republicans who wanted to vote against parts of the bill, they could do that, but the bill was going to pass. the bottom line is here. the republican speaker walked off the floor without allows the vote. i'm just saying these people have no problem finding new york, these republicans, when they're trying to raise money. they raised millions in n
to vote on the senate bill. he voted for it. eric cantor, his deputy who had long been rumored to be after his job, voted the other way. and so john boehner has been in a tenuous position. and then you had the controversy over hurricane sandy. he decided in deference to the spending concerns of some of his members to put off that vote last night and was blasted today by chris christie, the governor of new jersey, by peter king and other members from northeastern states, so he's gotta election tomorrow. i've got to tell you, larry, i spoke to a republican member who messaged me from inside a conference meeting and said there are no serious challenges to john boehner. there is a movement to have some nuts, as he called them, vote present in the speaker's election, but there won't be enough of them to matter, larry. >> wow, nuts voting present. john harwood, thank you very much. we'll talk to you tomorrow about this same story. let's go to two different viewpoints. we have two different people on mr. boehner's future. ron meyer, press secretary for american majority action. and robert costa,
members, voted no, including majority leader eric cantor and republican whip kevin mccarthy. at the end of the day, enough lawmakers across the aisle agreed to the deal, but at a cost of extremely strained relationships. politico reports on an encounter between speaker boehner and harry reid in the white house lobby. go [ bleep ] yourself, boehner sniped, as he pointed his finger at reid, according to multiple sources present. speaker boehner refused to bring forward a bill funding emergency aid for victims of superstorm sandy. this is how republican peter king responded this morning. >> john boehner has been personally helpful over the years, so it pains me to say this, but the fact is, the dismissive attitude that was shown last night towards new york, new jersey, connecticut, typifies, i believe, a strain in the republican party. we cannot believe that this cruel knife in the back was delivered to our region. >> now, unfortunately, these leaders will still need to work together, and soon. with one deadline down last night, the president has already begun positioning himself for the n
speakership looking over his shoulder as the camera shows of eric cantor right behind him ready -- >> but cantor is with him now, isn't he? hasn't his number two guy joined him? >> he's his number two guy and supporter, but he's the spiritual leader of the tea party caucus there, and that's the group that seems to be calling the shots right now in the house of representatives. >> let's talk about the republican party. let's try to be really analytical here. you know, to me two things happen in every election. one, somebody wins, somebody loses, and then there's the other part of every election, a signal is sent, which way the country wants to go. it's a verdict that goes out to the people who got re-elected. careful, buddy, careful, lady, you could be next. isn't there a sense in the republican party that obama won a comfortable re-election? >> yeah but -- >> yeah but. >> that was boehner's mistake. >> he thought that was reality. >> he thought that was reality, and he learned the other night that it wasn't. >> republicans don't see it in that world. what covers the sky in their
of the fiscal cliff deal. speaker boehner wanted it past but eric cantor was against it. it turns out the tension goes a lot farther back for two other members of the caucus. it starts with darrell issa who voted against the fiscal cliff. >> i'm with eric cantor. i can't vote for it in its current form. the senate and the president and vice president failed to meet their obligation. their own stated obligation which was to bring us a balanced bill. one that had tax adjustment, yes. but also had spending cuts. this one fails at that and fails badly. >> so enter ohio republican steve latourette who wasn't jazzed but took the plunge and voted yes. >> i went to the same high school as congressman issa but we haven't agreed on much since. >> did you agree in high school? >> i didn't see him a lot in class, so i don't know. >> somehow i doubt they'll show up together at the reunion. one point of agreement, both congressmen suggested that new year's eve was partially to blame for what the senate put together. >> i think it's a little unreasonable for senator reid to say something they produc
majority leader eric cantor telling republican members they should be back on sunday evening to be prepared to work. though much like the senate they have nothing to vote on right now. it is a positive sign if congressional leaders reach some type of a deal the house and senate will be in town to get votes on the record, but still there is no deal worked out right now between top democrats and top republicans in washington. house republicans are calling on the senate to pass their various proposals dealing with the fiscal cliff. the senate majority leader says it is up to the house to pass the senate plan. >> so i say to mr. speaker, take the escape we have left you. put the economic fate of the nation ahead of your own fate as speaker of the house. millions of middle class families are nervously watching, waiting and counting down the moments until our taxes go up. >> senate minority leader mitch mcconnell is expected to take the senate floor a few minutes from now. he has been saying his office has been saying throughout the day when senate democrats offer a plan, republicans will review
and the majority leader eric cantor are leaving out is all i is go to the senate because the speaker could be ate the job done last thursday night with plan b. e plan a is essentially the big deal, fortran dollars debt plan speaking a short time ago to a white house official who says they still believe th they move halfway towards republicans starting out only one interest tax in $250,000 above. they have moved that goalpost to $400,000 or more. speaker john boehner moved away from that saying it should be a from that saying it should be a or more, he brought it up and had to pull it back because it did not have enough republicans. frustration among them that they were jumping through hoops trying to get a deal and now the president on vacation in hawaii basically no progress. they understand that rea. eric: when did you know he was going to come back? >> we knew two or three days it was likely he was going to comel back. he wanted to spend family time yesterday and go to the marine base because it was a christmas vacation to thank the troops but they knew pretty quickly was going to have to get
. >> what accounts for that? earlier in the day there was all sorts of dissension, eric cantor among others, saying they weren't going to go for it. >> he may at the end of the day vote no. you're going to see a lot of republicans and a fair number of democrats vote no as well. what accounts for that is this is i think a classic compromise that nobody likes, meaning everybody lost things that they want and that is actually the way legislating used to be, that not everybody is happy but you realize you got to do what's best in order to actually get something passed. >> in terms of the white house, do they view this as a win for the president? >> yes. this is something the president campaigned on and what's in this bill is largely -- largely democratic priorities, anderson. $450,000 as the threshold wasn't what the president wanted but in principle that is the notion that the president wanted, tax increases for the wealthiest americans. it extends unemployment benefits for a year and it's not paid for. republicans wanted it paid for. but think about some of the other measures. they're doing t
and house majority leader eric cantor negotiated a year 1/2 ago that were put on the table. perhaps if you include some of that you increase some of the spending. what the democrats will be the spending on doctors fix, that is preventing doctors from getting a pay cut if they treat medicare patients and extending patch for alternative minimum tax to insure 10 of millions of americans don't have to pay the amt for this year, that is something congress typically does at the end of every year. it is not honest budgeting in washington. these are ideas that have come about basically as democrats and republican haves to throw the spending together at the end of every year. adam: we have about a minute before the president will start speaking the spending cuts that are on the table, there are a lot of people say that is enough to put the economy into recession. is that going to keep the democrats from possibly approving this deal? >> depends on the spending cuts. right now you're talking about $94 billion in what is known as the sequester. that is just for next year alone. automatic spending cuts
call. eric cantor ridge just announce the house plans to return on sunday at 6:30 p.m. and will be in session sunday through friday, that is after new year's by my calendar, still awaiting senate action but will be back on sunday, 40 hours that you were talking about. it is time for stocks. we head back to nicole petallides on the floor of the stock exchange. nicole: the best levels of the last few hours and wonder if people are saying i like it, put me in extra effort. a moment ago, the last half hour we were down 140 points so we are seeing some improvement in the market right now. let's talk about two names on the move, smith and wesson we are talking about, saw them selling off dramatically after the shooting in connecticut. just 3.5%, repurchasing of $15 million in shares. also dominos pizza, a great performer today and stock hitting an all-time high, oppenheimer raising the price to $50 and earnings per share, a vase a domino's pizza looking good, potential bright spot to the year 2013. tracy: coming up talking about the weather, a winter storm wreaking havoc o
eric cantor that he is against the bill. how damning is it that top republicans are coming out saying they're opposed to deal? >> that is very problematic. that could be a situation where a number about republicans say, look we have tax rates that have gone up. it is beyond january 1st, midnight. what this represents, this proposal is a tax cut, a major tax cut, basically for anybody, any family making less than $450,000 a year. on top of that, you also got this next round upcoming that of a debt ceiling fight. there are republicans like senator lindsey graham who are saying look, make sure you take the debt ceiling fight with your spending cuts, for the spending cut fight. why don't we make sure we cut taxes now and move onto that next round? that is a feeling among a number about republicans here. you have a significant amount of democrats, perhaps who could potentially come along with this. it is still so early in the stage, can't believe we're saying it is early in this because it is beyond the fiscal cliff deadline and into new year's day. still lots of to be worked out. a lot of
consensus. and at the 11th hour, you have eric cantor and kevin mccarthy, the number two and three in the house republican caucus breaking away. but who stands up and stands with boehner? it's ryan. it's ryan, the budget committee chairman. he could have done a lot to come back from the campaign trail and really try to assert himself against boehner. he didn't do that. he was boehner's ally. >> why? >> that really helped boehner at the end. why? because i think ryan long term is just like camp dadave camp. they're talking about the long-term tax reform is going to come on the debt ceiling in 2013 with the budget fight. you're so right on the debt part. but what they want to do now is lock in the rates. that was their argument in the caucus meeting last night. that was their argument on the floor. lock in the bush era rates, do what you can and move on. >> why did they break away from john boehner at the last moment other than it made a hell of a lot of good sense if you're actually conservative ideologically, you don't believe in adding $4 trillion to the national debt? >> i that i
him? who would run against him? eric cantor? could he muster a majority within the caucus right now? i kind of doubt it. we'll see. >> i was supposed to see this game sunday, john. >> which one? >> what do you mean which one? what's the most important game coming up this sunday? >> skins and cowboys. >> exactly. i was supposed to see it. luckily we're allowed to switch around. who wants to see jacksonville-10 see. because it's such a big game i have plans for the 1:00 game and now at 8:30, primetime football for nbc. >> so you're attending the game? >> i was going to. i don't think i can. i'd have to take off the next day and everything else. th they switched it on me. >> without your beauty sleep you can't do it. >> i can't get back here. >> you can do it from d.c. >> we have studios in washington. >> would you sit with me? >> yeah. >> really? all right. >> now we have plan. >> then you would be here. >> you could be here all alone. >> i could be here and you would be in d.c. >> it could work. >> joe, where's your money on that game? will be in redskins stadium. you think i would go t
chairman paul ryan did vote in favor of the bill while eric cantor and congressman mccarthy voted against it. responding quite positively to that news, doug responding less positively. the dow jones up 180 and nasdaq up 50 points and s&p 24 points and ftse up 500 points -- not 500 points. and you can see the ftse up 2% on this news and look at what happened there in asia. hang seng up almost 3%. one clarification, i think i may have misspoken when i said all of this lasting one year. what i was describing was extension of unemployment benefits, that lasts one year. these other taxes and cuts and increases are now permanent. >> the fiscal cliff a verdict for now. now, we can look forward to something with the debt ceiling in the next two months. joining us in washington is former oklahoma governor frank keating and ceo of the american bankers association. joining us from philadelphia, former pennsylvania governor, ed rendell, also a cnbc contributor. i have to tell that joke again, governor. what do you call 47 millionaires sitting around watching the super bowl? >> i give up. >> the phila
if someone to his right, that caucus shrinks more. >> clayton: and some-- >> you've heard paul ryan and eric cantor. >> clayton: he was speaking and saying no, those won't be the individuals up. >> dave: i don't think we'll see that. >> clayton: fascinating. >> juliet: we'll see some severe weather, wild weather into the northeast right now. and people are still having last week's snow. as you can see, the plows are sitting by, getting ready to get out there, and throwing the salt on the ground and we're going to go to maria molina right now for an update on what's happening, maria? >> hey, good morning. good to see you. good morning, everyone, we have another snowstorm coming into the northeast just after on thursday 20 inches of snow across places of parts of upstate new york and new england and hit with that storm and another round. the good news for the system it's not forecasted to be anywhereas strong as last one was. it will be in later this morning and out by later this evening and through tonight. across portions of the southeast we have been dealing with some areas of heavy rain an
